Restrictions on selling shares would reduce speculation on holding equities directly but would be extremely difficult and expensive to enforce.
It would also do nothing to increase long term investment (as stock markets have very little to do with investment in companies) .
But if nobody can sell for 5 days, how would an IPO be trading initially?
And what would prevent trigger trading on day 6?

Nice post S+F
I believe money has divided the world populations, those who have billions of dollars, believe they are superior over mankind.
Yes money, If you could take money out of the equation then all humans will be equal.
Money is power, the one's that have the most want control of mankind because money allows them to do so.
It is a sad shame that most billionaires are greedy and more is not enough.
Good and evil play a big role in who is controlling who, and I see a lot of evil here. Mankind has been forced to become slaves for thousands of years because of money.
We are taught this is the only system and nothing else will work for mankind. On the contrary we were taught wrong. there are now communities across the country thriving without the use of money.
No one is a slave and everyone is equal and it is working very well.
It is so true that money is the root of all evil in my opinion.
